Metal Detecting In Siberia - Site Kokorino (Story 10)

Pinpointing Another Productive Spot In the Field

Sergei suggested to move to a different area where many good coins were also discovered before. According to him, that spot could be another end of the village as the signals given by the iron nails would not appear any further past that point in the field. The smooth relief of the ground would not give any clues about the village's boundaries.

The weather changed and became more suitable for detecting: the sky had turned overcast, and the wind was blowing most of the mosquitos away. I only wished we had more daylight left for treasure hunting. Thinking that, I automatically began moving the coil a little faster, thus covering more ground within less time. Though, as a result, I recovered only a few more shallow targets--coins from the 19th century.
